My boyfriend and I had a wonderful day trip with James and his family. We wanted to snorkel and fish for a day (note: beaches in Spanish Wells are for relaxing and wading, not for snorkeling) and was seeking a knowledgeable guide. Upon our first interaction with James, we knew right away that he would be the perfect guide. He knew the ocean and its creatures really well, and we were particularly touched by his passion for the ocean. I am a tourist so it's expected that I am amazed by even the tiniest encounters, but James is a local that has grown up with the waters yet he expressed genuine excitement along with us throughout the day.
He took us on his lovely boat to snorkel a bit far off the island where we saw a wide array of fish and corals. We encountered a stingray within minutes of getting into the water. James also caught a fish with a spear! So very impressive. We then started fishing for yellowtails. James knew exactly how to catch them and where to find them. Within seconds of casting the bait into the water, we would catch fish. We even witnessed a handful of barracudas going after our caught prize! He helpfully gutted out the fish we caught so that we could take it home to eat. We had a wonderful picnic by the beach with his family and went on a final trip to the kelp forest where we went on a hut to find flamingo shells.
James is a kind, fun, and knowledgeable guide who will surely help make your trip to Spanish Wells memorable. You won't be disappointed!
